Coaches and players will refrain from any overt actions of disapproval, whether by gesture or in voice. Each game is conducted without verbal and physical abuse from other coaches, players and spectators toward coaches, players and officials on the court. Officials may stop the game if the situation warrants such action. The violating team will forfeit the game. The use of abusive language and profanity by coaches, players and spectators is prohibited at all times. Belittling, shouting and trash talking at players in a hostile manner is also prohibited. The Tournament seeks to provide a fun and exciting weekend for the players. Consequently, the Tournament reserves the right to warn and/or eject (for a single game or for the remainder of the Tournament) any player, coach or fan who, in the opinion of the referee(s) or Tournament Director, engages in unsportsmanlike conduct or improper behavior. No refunds will be given to such teams or individuals. FIGHTING AND/OR PROFANITY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
